Why not drive drunk in Japan

If you drank how to get home?

in Japan there is Daikou Unten, a company that provides a service similar to that of the taxi. Where 2 people are responsible for taking you home, one takes the car safely, and the other takes care of your arrival with the taxi, so everyone wins, and no bar owner will need to pay a fine for reckless drivers.

Some establishments already have people qualified for this service among their employees. Or they are responsible for contacting you for your safety. Remember: If you drink! Don't Drive!

This is one of the main reasons why there are few traffic accidents in Japan. Those who do wrong things end up with huge losses. This should serve as an example to Brazil and other countries, and also serve as a reminder for you to think twice before driving drunk.
